Default Passed CS exam in philly

Hey guys,

Just wanted to share my experience for those who are considering giving their exam in philly and are afraid bec of its bad reputation.

I would like to tell that it is a completely standardized exam and philly is as good as other centers.
There were about 5-6 IMGs out of total 24 students. Patients were co-operative and friendly.
Major mistakes i did were:
- My first case"s patient note I was totally screwed up. Made very pathetic d/d with not more than 2 supporting points as all the questions I asked, patient was just answering - no
- In pediatric case - mom was present in room and it was a girl child, but throughout the case I was asking ques by saying : He or his considering him a boy.
- In 2-3 cases forgot to write past h/o substance abuse in patient note.
There will definitely more minor mistakes which I am not remembering.

Still I passed with graph showing higher performance in all the 3 components.
Just Be confident and relaxed there and everything else will go well.
Good luck.
